Vietnam index ends up 0.25 pct on value buying

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   ended up 0.25 pct on Thursday, snapping an eight-day falling streak, as investors sought cheap shares in energy and
securities firms.
The index closed at 605.10 after having lost 4.6 percent between Wednesday and Sept. 15, due partly to a portfolio review by exchange-traded funds.  
Investors favouring risk could seek cheap shares that have fallen in recent sessions, such as those in the oil and gas sectors as well as securities companies, BIDV Securities said in a note to clients.
Petrovietnam Gas , the country's largest listed firm, gained 1.9 percent to close at the session's high of 107,000 dong ($5.05) each. The scrip has declined by around 16 percent since touching an intra-day record high of 128,000 dong on Aug. 29.
Saigon Securities   ended up 1.77 percent at 28,800 dong on Thursday.
Volumes hit 135.77 million shares, slightly below the five-day average of 136.53 million, Reuters data showed.

SE Asia Stocks-Mixed, Indonesian shares outperform regional markets

 Southeast Asian markets ended mixed on Thursday, with Indonesian stocks outperforming the region despite foreign outflow as investors bought beaten down shares after the sell off early this week.
Some markets were upbeat over Wednesday's gains on Wall Street on strong U.S. housing data and dovish statements from a top Federal Reserve official, but investors were still cautious and awaited U.S. jobless claims and durable goods numbers due later in the day for cues.  
The Jakarta Composite Index  ended 0.5 percent up, recovering from its lowest close since Sept. 16, despite selling from foreign investors, who offloaded a net $46.19 million worth of shares.  
 "The market is lacking new sentiment, but the decline in the past few days is giving investors opportunities to enter the market," said Reza Priyambada, head of research at Woori Korindo Securities Indonesia.
 Financials led the overall gain with Banks Central Asia   and Bank Rakyat Indonesia    adding 3.2 percent and 1.7 percent respectively.  
Priyambada said a stable rupiah  also supported positive sentiment.  
Thailand's SET index   surrendered its early gains to end steady at a 16-month closing high, with foreign investors buying $74.30 million worth of shares on Thursday.  
Analysts however said investors were optimistic of Thailand's economic growth prospect.  
Thailand's central bank will release revised economic projections on Friday and the market expects it to keep the country's 2014 GDP growth forecast under 2 percent and announce a higher growth estimate for the next year.  
Other Southeast Asian markets traded mixed. Malaysian shares  closed 0.2 percent firmer despite $39.12 million outflow, while the Philippines  ended 0.8 percent weaker, though foreign investors bought $7.43 million worth of shares.  
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index , which fell dropped below the key 600-mark in the morning session, recovered to end 0.3 percent higher.
